We start by adjusting the microphone position, level, and headphones volume to have the best sonic result. Then we basically record your Instrument or Voice on the computer. This first step is one of the most important: even if we are in a “digital” era, there are still things that we cannot fix. So sometimes you’ll need to do another take until it’s good rather than thinking the magic of the digital world will do it for you!
We cut the part of the recording that we do not need/want, to leave only the best of your performance. For example, if your entire song sounds amazing except the second verse, we will record it again and replace the bad one by the awesome one. It’s that simple!
We adjust frequency balance (EQ), effects (reverb, chorus, flange…), dynamic range (compressor, expander, noise gate), and pan pot -among others- and then mix the different tracks together. This is the very subtle step of making everything sounding clear, good and well balanced. The more numerous the tracks are, the harder and longer the work is. But this is also when you start feeling the beat!
We get the mixes ready to be ‘burned’ onto the destination medium (usually a CD). This is the final process before your media is broadcasted. As a part of this step, we listen to the result in different speakers to check if it sounds great in all of them. So we pay attention to each detail to make sure you’ll get the best product when leaving the studios!
Voice Over job session
If you’re coming for a Voice Over session related to one of our jobs, we might have sent you the script you’ll have to perform; or if you’re coming for a Voice Over session for yourself, you must bring or send us your script by email. Note that the more information we have about what type of Voice Over project it is, the better we can help you to act it right!
Music Recording session
If you’re coming for a Music Recording session, you must bring your instrument –as our studios only have keyboards- scores and/or lyrics if you need them (it’s always better to have them in case!). Note that if the instrumental part of your song already exists –and then you’re coming to simply record your part- you must bring your backing tracks either on CD or USB stick.
Also remember if you are coming to us for a mix, please bring each instrument/sound as a separate track with all the files starting at bar 1 EVEN if it only plays once half way through. This might mean a lot of silence in the audio, but that is fine. This way all the files will play together when they are mean to.
Corporate videos, training videos, tutorials, unboxing videos. Any idea is a good idea if you know how to make it come to real!
We like working close to our clients, working as partners. Our professional team guarantees high quality results but not for fancy brand agency prices. Sensible prices for sensible clients.
As we control the whole process, we can maintain quality till the the final result. We work with you, planning from the very beginning issues such as the script, type of shots, sound, lightening, music, video editing, etc, to ensure a good final result. If there errors we can fix them quickly and easily.
We will also immerse ourselves in what you do and sell so we are enthusiastic about it. Your viewers and community must believe that there is passion behind the content, and it’s not just a cold corporate video going through the motions.
This post is aimed for those who do not understand the meaning of ‘technical words’ when they visit recording studios. You will understand the basic audio vocabulary that all people should know for getting started in the studio!
It is also advisable for those who already know basic audio concepts, so you can refresh your memory or learn another way to understand the concept.
You’ve probably heard that sound engineers often work in very high sound volume. That isn’t a myth! But this is not only because it sounds louder. Psycho acousticians (Fletcher and Munson) have proved that at low level Human ears are not as sensitive at low frequencies as they are at high frequencies. In fact, our ears are the most sensitive about 3.5 kHz (due to ear pattern and composition). To make it clear let’s take a simple example.
Catch one of your CD that contains a big quantity of low frequencies (for instance Reggae, Rap, Hip-Hop, Electro…) and play it in your stereo. Turn the volume off and start pushing it up slowly until you can hear something. Now keep that volume and try focusing on the kick or bass, can you hear them? I bet you not! That’s because when listening at low level we are less sensitive at low frequencies.
And as a part of our sound engineer work, we must pay attention to frequency balance and instruments mixing. So if we work at high levels, this is simply to make sure our own ears won’t fool us !
At 2002 studios, we know that some of our clients like music to be even louder than us; but don’t forget that it could damage ears; plus you might loose many details when listening too loud. It’s a bit like light: you can’t see in the dark but you won’t feel much better getting blind !
“Man Powered Films” was launched in 2005 by Mark Philip Lichtenstein with his own vision of movie making : “All great art comes not just from inspiration, but from hard work, from manpower.” 2002Studios have proudly worked with them for their last film called “Spellbound”. We have managed all the audio part in order you hear the cleanest music and sound !
We do not tell you anything more about this video because you have to watch it !
